HID Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, has expanded its iCLASS SE® platform with long-range ultra-high-frequency (UHF) solutions that provide new options for opening doors and parking gates from a distance. The addition of long-range iCLASS SE readers and credentials enables organisations to combine parking gate and door access control on a single card. The convenient solution makes it possible to read credentials from inside vehicle at distances of up to 16.4 feet (5 metres) from the reader.

Expanded functionalities for enhanced access control

“HID Global now offers an easier way for our customers to add parking and gate control to their security infrastructure, with new long-range access options that enhance user convenience while improving the flow of people and vehicles to and from facilities,” said John Fenske, vice president of product marketing – Physical Access Control with HID Global. “Our new portfolio of readers and credentials significantly expands the capabilities of an organisation’s access control systems across UHF and smart card technologies. The new solution has already delivered proven security and convenience benefits in early deployments at installations spanning hundreds of readers and more than a million credentials.”

HID Global’s long-range solutions portfolio includes a new rugged and weather-resistant reader that has been optimised for outdoor use. The iCLASS SE U90 Long Range reader can be used from distances of up to 16.4 feet (5 metres) and features advanced encryption along with end-to-end communications technology for the industry’s highest level of UHF access control security. Also available is a dual-technology iCLASS SE and UHF credential for use with the UHF reader and other iCLASS SE platform readers, providing a single solution for seamless door, parking and gate control.

The new solution enables the following capabilities:

  • Hands-free parking access at the gate without having to roll down the window: The iCLASS SE U90 reader allows users to activate gate control from inside the car.
  • “No-stop” hands-free parking access with the iCLASS SE U90 reader and UHF credentials: Offers a highly secure, long distance option for parking gate control and the additional benefit of improved vehicle flow through parking facilities.
  • Integrated parking and gate control with building access: High frequency architectures can combine door and parking control on a single credential.
  • Higher security: The readers support OSDP to extend security across all communications connections, including long distances between readers and controllers.
